Editorial Reviews


'Luis Cardoso's book reads like a novel, but is definitely not fiction. It is a beautifully written story of his life, finely intertwined with the tragedy of East Timor? Contemporary Review

Format: Paperback
A highly authentic account of a life growing up in rural Timor, followed by a move to the capital Dili, thence to Portugal. This book offers some unique insights which, to the best of my knowledge, are not available anywhere else. It is a privilege to be writing this review on the first day of Timor's birth as an independent nation, after being subject to domination by invading forces for the last 450 years.
